As the Oscar night unfolds before us bestowing statuettes to the winners in film, and the drama that surrounds those productions, I can't help think about the drama that unfolds in all our lives; the good, the bad and the ugly. But doesn't a good movie help us cope with that drama in our own lives at times? And the "funny" thing is that movies try to "imitate" real life, and try to do that in about two or three hours, not a lifetime of comedy, tragedy, farces and melodrama that we all endure day in and day out. Perhaps trying to find the "silver linings" in each day makes it all worthwhile no matter the circumstances we face.
